Few People Know About This Hidden Lava Tube Cave You Can Explore In Northern California

When it comes to caving, Northern California is the place to be. After all, we’re home to the one and only Lava Beds National Monument which contains the largest concentration of lava tube caves in North America. 25 of these caves contain marked entrances, so it can be pretty overwhelming when it comes to deciding which one to explore. Most people opt for the uber popular Skull Cave or other easy caves such as Valentine, Sentinel, and Mushpot. These are the caves that usually see the most action when tourist season is in full swing. But there’s so many other amazing caves to explore! If you really want to be blown away, head straight to the cave called Golden Dome. This little-known lava tube cave is one of the park’s most amazing adventures and you’ll definitely want to see it with your own eyes.
